Anna Ridler: Time Within Time
Sep 16 – Dec 16, 2023
Galerie Nagel Draxler
Berlin, Germany

Anna Ridler, renowned for her unique juxtaposition of the speculative nature of cryptocurrencies and historical economic phenomena, presents her first solo exhibition at Nagel Draxler. Delving into the intricate interplay between natural rhythms, digital representations, and the dynamics of blockchain time and value, Ridler offers a captivating exploration of these complex concepts. The artist and researcher, born in 1985, is working with systems of knowledge and how technologies are created in order to better understand the world. She is particularly interested in ideas around measurement and quantification and how this relates to the natural world. Her process often involves working with collections of information or data, particularly datasets, to create new and unusual narratives.

[ . . . ]

Through Ridler’s art, audiences are invited to become more discerning of these landscapes and the temporal features each cultivates. Flowers may seem the very opposite of machine learning algorithms, of mechanical clocks, of lasting impressions, though they have an early association with technology and data sets, present distinct temporal rhythms, and appear pressed into memory books. Tempo, temporality, timeframes. Anna Ridler’s aesthetics blossom timescapes with an unerring beauty.

  • Adrianna Ault: Levee
    Publication
    Void
    International

    Adrianna Ault was raised in New Orleans where a 350 mile levee system controls and holds back flood waters. This project began as Ault attempted to better understand the landscape surrounding the city, but evolved over the course of 5-years to encompass her changing family, journeys they took and the processing of grief. The levee became a metaphor for the barriers built in an attempt to ward off inevitable decline, and the onslaught of time and nature. (more…)
